    QoS and New Internet Capabilities

    John Crain
    Chief Technical Officer
    Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers

    I am currently the Chief Technical Officer at ICANN, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (http://www.icann.org). The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is an internationally organized, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions.

    Prior to my time at ICANN, I worked as part of the executive management team at the RIPE NCC in Amsterdam (http://www.ripe.net). The RIPE NCC is the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) that provides Internet resource allocations for Europe and surrounding areas.

    I have been directly involved in the administration of Internet Identifiers since my start at the RIPE NCC in 1995 and have worked in all areas of IP address administration.
    I also have extensive experience in the area of DNS administration and managing Internet infrastructure services. Currently I am responsible for the management of l.root-servers.net, one of the Internet’s 13 “Root Servers” (http://www.root-servers.org)

    Before becoming involved in Internet Administration I worked as a Design Engineer in composite materials research and development. In that role I was also responsible for local area networking off Computer Aided Design Systems and for writing and developing custom software applications.
